Looking Back on Slovenia
Brooke is my right hand in the office and she is telling me that I have two paragraphs to describe our recent trip to Slovenia, that's a hard thing to do. Honestly I think I might need more of a book to tell you about the trip, it was that good. We were based in the Julian alps where the country is stunning with gin-clear rivers and tributaries and better fishing regulations than any other country that we've ever visited. Fly fishing, catch and release, is the norm, great hotels, great food, very friendly people and a terrific guide, a young woman, Tina Possnig.
This was an exploratory trip for a group of ten and we found all our guides to be excellent, but Cathy and I spent most of our time with Tina, a true professional who spends her time tying and selling flies and related products online and introducing her clients to the best of Slovenia rivers. She has an outgoing personality and her goal is to get her clients into a great fish which she easily does. She is a trout hunter first, stealthy beyond words with great eyes to find fish. Will we return? Absolutely. So, if you haven't fished in Slovenia, make sure you put it on your bucket list and consider joining us on a return trip. View our album.
2 Rods in Spain
A room just opened up for our trip to the Pyrenees for a week of beautiful fall fishing, October 4-11, 2019. There are lots of pretty places to fish in the fall and the eastern Pyrenees is one of them. Our week will include a variety of fishing experiences – high mountain freestone streams, spring creeks, larger streams, and tailwater fisheries. Browns, rainbows, an occasional brook trout, wild zebra trout and barbel. Cool mornings and warm afternoons make this a very special time of year in the mountains.
Spain is also a great destination for a non-fishing partner as they have their own tour guide and transportation. Each day is a new adventure visiting wineries, medieval villages, cathedrals, and castles. For anglers and non anglers alike, this is a wonderful trip.
Country Life Experience
Here at home we are well into summer with good water levels and beautiful summer weather. If you're looking for something fun for the family, young and old, we still have dates available for our Country Life Experience. We customize this program for each individual family depending on the interests and ages of everyone from young to not-so-young.
Come see us and let us show you our waterfalls, the horses at Springdale Farm, fly fishing, campfires, kayaking, and more. The younger set can sleep in a tent while the older set enjoys the comforts of the Lodge at Raven Creek, which is exclusively yours for your stay. It's fun for everyone.
